Negotiation + Litigation: Choosing the right attorney is perhaps the most significant factor in determining the success of your matter. The right attorney must do more than provide wise counsel and advocacy. He or she must also be a source of guidance, trust, and comfort during this difficult part of your life. You are encouraged to interview several attorneys before making a final decision. As Mr. Shapiro participate's directly in all important matters on each case, he must be highly selective in the matters he accepts. Mr. Shapiro welcomes the opportunity to meet with you in person to determine whether he is a good fit for you and the individual needs of your case. His intake process enables you to meet with him and strategize regarding next steps. It is therefore vital that you are candid and complete in the information you provide at the initial consultation and throughout the scope of the representation.
Mediation: Mediation is a confidential, non-binding process in which the parties attempt to settle their family law issues through the use of a neutral third party. As a trained mediator Mr. Shapiro facilitates communication and works to find what is important to the parties to reach a mutually acceptable and fair resolution of all or part of the dispute. Mediation can be initiated at any time by consent.
